Five staffers were laid off on April 1 from WMFE-TV in Orlando, Fla., the same day it announced the station was sold to a Christian broadcaster, pending FCC approval. Around eight more positions also will be affected in the coming weeks, Lorri Shaban of TW2 public relations in Orlando told Current. She declined further details.

The station also had a two-week staff furlough and wage freeze in October 2010, and laid off 28 percent of its employees in February 2009.
